    Too long. Too many. I understand it was written a long time ago, but seriously? When I started reading the 1st letter, I read the entire thing 4 TIMES and couldn’t help skipping words. It’s not eye-catching. Wizard of OZ? Understandable. Harry Potter? Easy. Frankenstein is hard to read. Why is it in ‘young adults’? I can read most young adults books. NOT THIS. Sorry if I insulted anybody. It just not eye catching.

    I’m in love with this book! First time reading it and I can’t believe I have never had the opportunity to read it.

    Good story, but a little slow at times. Or course you can’t expect everything to be action packed all the time. I always appreciate a story about the descent into madness and this one definitely has just that. I also love an old book by a woman, I wish there were more. Worth the read, especially with the zero price tag on Apple Books.

    Saw all the movies related to this tail. And a bio of MaryShelly so I decided to read the original story. Language is a little archaic but interesting and the style is fascinating. Great and good reading. Read it in a couple of days. I recommend it, it is classic.
  • Unbelievable read...

    As I read this book, I found it to be both wonderful and terrible. The loss of life, the lessons learned, the changes of the heart... All combined into a beautiful, eloquent book. It is a very rare story that can draw tears from my eyes or engage my heart. Well done, Mary Shelly!
  • A haunting gothic masterpiece
